I'd made a reservation for two before realizing that we'd be joined by a third for dessert. The host was so accommodating and gave us a great table for four even though it would only be two for about 1.5 hours. Our waiter brought me a couple wine samples based on what I like which was a nice treat. Food... More

Not over the top... just good service and good wine and food. Stella is more or less a can't miss when you want more than a burger but less than a full gourmet experience.

We had a Saturday night reservation and were seated within 10 minutes. Service and food were very good......really enjoyed the braised short ribs. My only complaint was that it was very noisy.....probably not the best choice to go and catch up with friends. I felt like I was yelling by the end of the meal.

We went to Stella for the first time on a very cold night at the end of December and walked into a festive, warm and upbeat restaurant filled with people having a great time! While we waited for our table the bartender took our order while being slammed, but managed to get our drinks out in record time --delicious cosmo'... More

My daughter and I walked from our hotel to Stella on the recommendation of our hotel desk person. We did not have a reservation but were treated kindly and professionally, and seated within about 15 minutes. Our food was beyond delicious. Some might consider it "pricey", but we would eat there again and again.

Ok. Its the best kept secret. Go eat at the bar from 4 to 6 and all the apps are $5.00. The service is awesome and the food is great. I would eat there everyday if I could. Beet salad, carpaccio, fried artichokes...... Yum

Carol and I returned to this neighborhood restaurant as our first place to eat in returning to Boston for a short visit. It felt like returning home since our old home(700 Harrison Ave) was a block away. The service was outstanding because Rocco took good care of us. We started with a good salad with walnuts, gongazola cheese, berries and... More

The braised lamb chop I had was probably one of the best ever. Food was great, it was the special for the night. We had a large group seated in the back. Great appetizers. Too full for dessert so I can't share any updates. I'd definitely come back again. Good venue with multiple areas to be seated, good service. Nice... More
